    I worked at CORE Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a company with a bold corporate mission statement of honesty and integrity. Family owned and operated with loads of very long term employees.

    Cons

    The problem is that this is a bold faced LIE. As a pm or estimator, you will be forced to lie, cheat, and steal from customers.

    If you have an ounce of true integrity, you will not fit well in this company.

    The family owners constantly preach Christian virtue but soil that virtue by their actions.

    This company is a cancer

    Advice to Management

    Try to stop stealing from customers. They will eventually figure it out and will most likely be a bit upset.

    I have been working at CORE Construction full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is an initiative to improve the culture within the company.
    They need professional help if they want to succeed.

    Cons

    They habitually overwork their salaried employees 10 to 20 hours a week.
    This is not random, every project is run this way.
    Think about it, they're getting 25 to 50 present of the employees time for free.

    Advice to Management

    The first priority should be the Employee (Internal Customer), then the Client (External Customer).

    You can not maintain a culture if your employees aren't happy as they'll go elsewhere.

    Great, knowledgeable people brought together by a common culture.

    Company based bonus (very small) unless you are top management or in the grace of the family. Salaries are small, and asking for raises are frowned upon.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your people
